Would You Like Music with That Emoji?

The first emojis emerged in text-happy Japan as a way to economically express emotions, reactions and opinions. Today there are hundreds and hundreds of then used by billions every day. They’re very handy–but can they still be improved?

Emojam is “the world’s first animated emoji encrypted with music.” From the press release:

EmoJam is proud to announce the first encrypted animated emoji app ever created. This app lets you share emojis with music encrypted in your messaging apps communications. For example, if you want to say, ‘something or someone is cold’ you can send the “Cold like Minnesota” by Lil Yachty EmoJam to make a vivid impression and bring a dose of humor.

The animated emojis redirect the users to the app’s artist page where you see videos, songs, tweets, can shop concert tickets and more. 

 The launch of the app contains 24 Hip Hop and R&B musical emojis plus they teamed up with Def Jam and their artist Bibi Bourelly who self-directed her very own collection of musical emojis for each song of her new EP Free The Real (Pt. 2)
